5G Adoption: A Complex Journey, Not Just a Destination

Complications for military use of the electromagnetic spectrum will arise as more countries adopt and implement 5G technology. In this article by Dr. Thomas Withington for Jane’s International Defense Review, TCI’s Kevin Davis and Misho Tkalcevic argue that the diversity of frequency allocations will pose a challenge for military planners worldwide. The key with 5G, according to TCI, is to understand who is doing what, when and how, as well as recognizing the potential for mesh networks and other technologies to be part of the solution.
